Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has accepted the African Union`s "road map" to end conflicts in the country, South African President Jacob Zuma said Sunday, according to Xinhua.

The road map called for an immediate cease-fire and opening a political dialogue between the rebels and the government.

Zuma and leaders of several other African countries visited Libya over the weekend to meet Gaddafi on behalf of the African Union to mediate an immediate cease-fire between Libya`s government troops and the rebel forces. The delegation is also expected to meet with rebel leaders in the eastern city of Benghazi.
